I have watched my two children grow and thrive with Young Life in their lives. And MY faith has grown just watching them! I am constantly blown away by the young adults that volunteer their time to walk with these kids and help them through all the struggles of being a teenager. There is no other non-profit organization that I would rather give my time and my money to!!! "You were made for this"!!!

The Great!

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

there are too many GREAT experiences to name!!

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

I just returned from a weekend retreat where EVERY staff and volunteer was there for the right reason - to "go all out for kids" and to make sure that every kid sees the light of Jesus Christ through them.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

reach even more kids in more places all over the world

Absolutely amazing nonprofit. I have never been a part of an organization that has changed so many kids lives. Young Life is for every kid, and every kid is for Young Life.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I have been a Young Life leader for four years. I have seen kids come from broken homes and have no one who loves them, find themselves and gain confidence and love for Jesus Christ.

I only wish that I had more time to devote to this organization. My area also needs financial backing which has been difficult, but we still do very well with what we have.

I have seen dozens of lives changed through this nonprofit. There is nothing else out there in my opinion that allows kids the freedom to explore their faith and develop relationships with adults who can love them and help lead them through such an awkward and difficult time of life.

I was a Young Life club kid in the early 70's (still keep in touch with my YL leader from Montgomery County, PA even after all these years!). Young Life planted the seeds for me to become a follower of Jesus Christ during my sophmore year in college - I love their attitude/approach re: "earning the right to be heard" by walking with kids "where they are". The coolest thing is that since the early 90's I have been an employee with their military ministry in Colorado Springs (Military Community Youth Ministries - MCYM/Club Beyond) and giving back to an organization that "made a difference in my life"! *Nancy Peterson

Young Life was there for my kids throughout their middle and high school years. Attending clubs and making friends through Young Life gave them a way to cope with negative peer pressure and hang on to a better way. Now my daughter is a Young Life leader. She loves helping other kids who struggle during their teen years. YL's program for developing leaders is second to none. It has given her interpersonal skills she will utilize in her career and whole life.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

seeing kids lives change so radically! It has been wonderful to see kids trapped in substance abuse, depression, sexual promiscuity, or suicidal thoughts be set free and develop confidence, leadership skills and healthy friendships.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

committed to see young people set free from destructive behavior.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

send a lot more kids from impoverished homes to life-changing summer camps.

Seeing the lives of young men changed forever. They find purpose, they find drive, they realize that they have worth and that they are loved. Their perspective is new and their character is developed. All this b/c a loving adult walked into their life.

Young Life is an organization that my life has been changed through. I was on a path to self-destruction and through the teaching of Jesus Christ and the prophets, Young Life helped me discover the most amazing thing ever; That God wants to be my Friend!

i started early

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

how to get into the rural areas of the country

One thing I'd also say is that...

young life needs to reach the inner city and non-white population. not because it doesn't want to meet that group, it just needs to expand the urban ministry base.

Young Life was what kept me on the right track in high school! I was surrounded by wealth, alcohol, sex, etc with a constant temptation to walk in that direction but Young Life was a constant positive influence that showed me the positive way of life. My leaders spent time with me and got to know my family and me. They showed me how to walk with Christ daily. Since, high school, I have been a Young Life leader myself and love sharing this passion for Christ with other teens and college students as well. YL also changed my families life .. through me. Thanks Young Life!
